of the spectrum. kind of in that gray area for president obama and for governor walker, we had a fierce debate over the recall of gov. walker. the economy and jobs were central to that debate. a lot of conflicting statistics. somewhat sluggish jobs growth. nothing that would disqualify a president or assure his reelection. how does the state breakdown? you have to look at our political history. wisconsin is a swing state and that is why we are talking about it. . a little misleading, though, because it is often extremely close and often very close to where the country is as a whole. it was even closer in 2000 that was in 2004. you had this big blowout victory for barack obama in 2008. democrats have tended to dominate the u.s. senate elections, but we had a big republican tidal wave in 2010. if they win the senate seat this november, it will be the first time since the 1950's we have had two republican senators. it is a state that swings back and forth between the two parties. host: what areas of the state trend republican? is there a place where the two meet? guest: you have basic areas and s

, obama, with what is going on with him as well. it is already a lost decade and that is just horrible. just a comment republicans hoped that this would be a seat they could make competitive. her numbers are not great. they are not awful, they are sort of soft, mediocre. republicans ended up hosting a primary with a former member of congress, ran for the gubernatorial nomination, lost the race, he won the primary but he seemed to run out of steam, and especially money. he had to spend at his campaign war chest. the races in michigan were more competitive but the romney campaign is airing ads there. i think that that actually hurt hoekstra's chances a good deal. while i thought there was some potential for the rights to the competitive, all the data i have seen in the last six weeks suggests to me that stand now is likely going to win reelection. host: we go to ohio for our last phone call. caller: how are you? host: what do you have to say? caller: i want to ask ms. duffy, what do you think about the senate races in massachusetts, columbus, ohio? i am from columbus, a female, and an af
